The CW have released the official promotional images for Arrow 2.18 'Deathstroke', airing on April 2nd. If a title like “Deathstroke” isn’t enough for you, Summer Glau is back as Isabel Rochev and she's ready to cause Oliver a world of trouble!
Official description for Arrow 2.18 'Deathstroke':
OLIVER’S WORLD STARTS TO CRUMBLE — Slade (Manu Bennett) makes his move against Oliver (Stephen Amell) and the repercussions are enormous.

Meanwhile, Isabel (guest star Summer Glau) makes her move to take Queen Consolidated away from Oliver. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Drew Z. Greenberg (#218).
Here are the 22 promo images for Arrow 2.18 'Deathstroke' in high resolution.
Arrow 2.18 'Deathstroke' airs on The CW on Wednesday, April 02 at 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET.
I was looking at the official poster for the adventure film "Divergent" (2014) and the pose of the female heroine, played by Shailene Woodley, reminded me of the way Summer Glau's Cameron was shown in some of the promo photos for Terminator: The Sarah Conor Chronicles. You'll notice Lena Headey's character is much less sexualized than Cameron (which is also reflected in the clothing).
Check it out for yourself.
Fans of action/superhero movies have noticed a trend in promotional materials: female characters are often shown in uncomfortable positions seemingly designed only to highlight their (spandex-covered) bottoms and breast at the same time.
I guess the studios find that these kind of shots attract the demographic they are targeting, namely young men, who also happen to be avid comic books readers.
Find a few examples of the Strong Female Character Pose below.
And don't get us wrong, male super-heros in tights are also sexualized with their impossibly muscled chest, biceps and abs. All these photos do is over-exaggerate the characteristics of each gender for marketing purposes.
Cartoonist Kevin Bolk drew a parody of an early movie poster for "The Avengers" in which he reversed the poses of male and female characters. Here's what he had to say about the way male and female superheroes are objectified:
I often hear the counterargument that 'Oh, well, men are objectified just as much as women because they are muscular and wear tights.' But that idea ignores that A) these characters aren't contorting to constantly show off their elaborately rendered sexy parts (as the ‘Avengers booty’ piece demonstrates) and B) they are meant to appeal to a male power fantasy, not necessarily to arouse women.
Check out Bolk's bootylicious 'Avengers' movie poster below alongside the original:
Do you think Summer Glau could play in the future a character that will get the Strong Female Character Pose treatment as it was the case for Cameron in Terminator: The Sarah Conor Chronicles?
And while the Knights of Badassdom poster and DVD cover art don't show an objectified image of Summer's character Gwen, don't you think the "Summer Glau: Hottie Montage" included in the Blu-ray extras suggests the focus will be on Gwen's looks instead on her bravery?
Will Summer Glau's Arrow character Isabel Rochev appear in Arrow episode 2.19 titled "The Man Under The Hood"?
A call sheet was posted for the "The Man Under The Hood" episode of Arrow online by someone whose father works where the episode was filmed. Despite the poor quality of the photo, the document references two cast members that are set to be a part of the cast on the Arrow spin-off "The Flash": Carlos Valdez, cast as Cisco Ramon; and Danielle Panabaker, cast as Caitlin Snow. The sheet also references S.T.A.R. Labs and the core "Arrow" cast...plus recurring guest star Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev (see red arrow on the image below).
UPDATE: At an Arrow screening and Q&A session, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim confirmed that two characters from the Flash pilot will also be appearing in the 19th episode of Arrow Season 2, which is titled “The Man Under The Hood.” I guess that also confirms Summer Glau's guest appearance.

In this interview with SIDEWALKS host Richard R. Lee, which was taped at the 2009 WonderCon convention, Summer Glau talked about her work in Firefly, the continuing fandom for her previous sci-fi series Firefly and film Serenity, her favorite moments playing a female Terminator in The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and what future acting role she would like.
The interview is also known for the hugs Richard got at the end of the interview. Summer looks very cute in her Batgirl t-shirt and is her adorable self as usual.
Richard R. Lee's comment on this interview:
I wasn't expecting to interview Summer that day. I have to admit I got a little nervous right before, because I was fan of her's from my favorite show, Firefly. In the interview, I told her that and in the end she gave me a hug, which I wasn't expecting. She is really cool. Our videographer JP was jealous, too. He, as well, is a fan of Firefly, too. We kept joking about my "hug" throughout the day.
Here are some screencaps and exclusive photos of Summer Glau from her interview by Sidewalks at WonderCon 2009.
Summer Glau, Shirley Manson and showrunner Josh Friedman attented a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Q&A panel at WonderCon 2009 on March 1st in San Francisco to promote TSCC season 2. IGN took the opportunity to interview Summer Glau. In this video interview, Summer talks about what will happen to her character Cameron Phillips in the second half of the second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
I love her smile when the interviewer asks her about future John's involvement with Cameron. And she calls it a romance! Well two things are obvious, Summer loves her character very much and she is a Jameron shipper.
Summer also talks about the burn scene at the end of the season two premiere and the imagery of her "cadellac coffin" and how she looked like Dracula while lying there with her hands crossed on her chest, then she turns into a princess with the way that John helps her out of the car.
Summer Glau is just her natural self, her shyness and cuteness are her biggest traits, that's why her fans love her so much, and she looks really adorable in that interview. And I love the Batgirl t-shirt she is wearing...
Here are some HD screencaps of Summer Glau from her interview by IGN at WonderCon. If you like watching Summer's facial expressions, this is the post for you. Summer has probably one of the most expressive face on television...and without a doubt one of the loveliest!
